Re: 1st real drive.

Thanks All for the info. I will try the adjustments today. I put about 100 miles on it yesterday and today will be a good day to go over a few things that need some attention. Even if the Speedo flutters the smile on my face is still there. I also noticed towards the end of the day that my voltmeter...

1st real drive.

I got the Triking out for it first real drive today after getting the registration and insurance taken care of. What great fun. I noticed that at about 60 mph the EBT speedo starts to flutter and it reads between 70 and 90 mph. I read in an old post that Richard and Pat had maybe a similar issue but...

Re: Passed inspection

The way it works in Wisconsin is: 1. Contact the Department of Motor Vehicles 2. Explain what you are doing and they put you in touch with a specialty dept. They send you a registration form to fill out. It asks for make, model, year, etc. Replica, kit car, home made, vintage, etc. Because it has th...

Passed inspection

Just passed inspection yesterday. The state trooper was very professional and seen like a genuinely nice guy. He looked over the Type 3 and went through his check list and gave it the thumbs up. When he was all done he said “ man that thing is really cool”. I offered to take him for a ride and he sa...

Re: Nova racing reverse gearbox

John Thanks for the info. I think you are correct with the chain causing the lumpiness. As soon as I get it inspected and register I will be putting many miles on it. I got a phone call from a Wisconsin State trooper about scheduling an inspection. He was doing a little research on TriKing and said ...

Re: Nova racing reverse gearbox

Hello Richard and Pat, I did check the u-joints to make sure they are not rubbing. I have isolated it to the reverse box as you can hear and feel it coming from there. I sent an email to Allan and he mentioned that there is a noticeable “lumpy” feel when the box is new and it gets smoother as it run...

Nova racing reverse gearbox

I finally got the Triking out for a test drive without the body work. So much fun!!!! I did notice that there is a noise coming from the reverse gear box, specifically the front half. If I place the reverse box in neutral and the Guzzi box in neutral and spin the from drive shaft by hand, I can feel...

Re: Rear bumper

I am registering it as a motorcycle but it looks like I have to register it as a Type 2 motorcycle which requires a rear bumper. We will see what the state trooper (who does the inspection) says. The Morgan 3 wheeler, and the Polaris slingshot do not have rear bumpers or wipers and somehow can be re...

Rear bumper

Hello Everyone. I just recently got my paperwork from the DMV here in Wisconsin, USA. One of the things required for the inspection is a rear bumper. :roll: I have never seen a Triking or a new Morgan 3Wheeler with a bumper. I know the Morgan is 50 state legal so I am a bit perplexed. I am getting t...
